One Change challenges

Labor intensive campaign planning

First, it was very labor-intensive to organize canvassing activities for large teams of field staff, who often cover a wide geographical area.

Inaccurate data reporting

Second, at the end of each campaign, they needed to provide accurate data to campaign sponsors. This requires manually checking and correcting all the data collected by staff. This was costly and time-consuming.


Custom iPad tracking app

NetFore developed an iPad app that One Change staff members use to manage the planning and execution of their campaigns from anywhere.

Create and distribute walk-lists

Using the app, campaign managers create “walk-lists” of street addresses that each staff member is assigned to visit. Walk-lists are pushed out to field staff electronically via the app.

Capture and upload survey data

When a staff member visits each address, they record responses to survey questions in the app. When they connect to Wi-Fi, all their data is uploaded directly to a central database that tracks all campaign activities.


  • Mobile app simplifed the creation and assignment of staff walk-lists
  • Reduced manual data recording errors and streamlined and automated the process for collecting data
  • Accelerated progress reporting to campaign sponsors and improved overall accuracy of the data collected
